Charles Spurgeon once said, “When you feel yourself to be utterly unworthy, you have hit the truth.”
Are we utterly unworthy? What is it that gives us worth? In whose eyes should we even try to be worthy? These are all questions that people, especially women, ask themselves.
Webster defines worth as: the value of something measured by its qualities or by the esteem in which it is held.
So, are we supposed to be measured by our qualities or by others who hold us in esteem?
I think not. I agree with Spurgeon in that we are all utterly unworthy. The only place I ultimately have any worth at all is through the blood of my Savior, Jesus Christ. The only one with whom I should be concerned seeing my worth is my God. He sees me as worthy because when He looks at me, He sees me through the blood of Jesus because I have been washed in it and cleansed of all unworthiness!
Praise be to Him that we are never alone or unworthy!

Thanks so much for the encouragement. Reminding ourselves of God’s love, grace, and sacrifice is so helpful when we are feeling unworthy. Jesus is our brother, our hero, and our reason for living!
